I always think of Lil-lets which wereor maybe still are,made by Lillia-Whites

carol35 Tue 14-Oct-08 16:52:17

How popular is it?

bingotrons Tue 14-Oct-08 17:09:56

I like the name lilia

nooka Tue 14-Oct-08 17:10:20

I prefer either Lila or Lilian. I've not come across a Lilia

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 14-Oct-08 19:22:09

Love Lilia.
Especially Lilia off Strictly.
(She's fab).
Very pretty name, but can't imagine it being extrememly popular at the moment tho????

never heard it before, but i think it's beautiful.

Another one here who thought of tampons. Sorry.

My best pal recently named her third DD Lilia- lovely name!

A cabbie recently told me his baby is a Lilia.

Given the popularity of the name Lily and Strictly's fabulous Lilia it's bound to become more popular.

Sorry but the name shouts 'sanitary products'

Flibbertyjibbet Tue 14-Oct-08 21:10:46

I am becoming more and more convinced that there was some sanitary towell product called Lilia in the 70's when I started my periods.

So I just googled and I was right. Lilia was a sanitary towell made my Smith and Nephew.

Don't call your baby that. Any woman over 40 will think 'sanitary towell'.

Sorry again.

Flum Tue 14-Oct-08 21:12:53

Probably because I have a baby due - but it reminds me of Labia!

solidgoldskullonastick Tue 14-Oct-08 21:13:10

There was a sanitary towel called Lilia. It's nearly as inadvisable as calling your DD Candida.

LynetteScavo Tue 14-Oct-08 21:15:44

I'm not sure....I do love Liliana though....

Flum Tue 14-Oct-08 21:19:41

Mmmm Liliana is nice

franch Tue 14-Oct-08 21:21:57

Yep, I thought of sanitary products too I'm afraid - glad I'm not the only one

Lilja is the Icelandic form of Lily which I loved for a while but now think it would take a bit of explaining. The only person I mentioned it to said the thing about Strictly Come Dancing when that was NOT the inspiration at all and I would be blush if people thought that was how I chose it.

It's a form of Liliana, but Liliana is in my opinion too common - Lilia would be a good choice:

baby name Lilia

Its very popular in Eastern Europe, therefore in my part of London, where there is a large Polish population, it is increasingly popular.

It reminds me of one of the most heart wrenching films I have ever watched: Lilia Forever (its about the sex trade and Lilia did not have a happy life).

I like Leila. But it's a bit too soft imo. I like a name to have a bit more strength. Pretty but strong. Lydia with Lila as a nn would be better imo.

Lyla, Layla etc very 'of the moment' mix them in with Lily and Ella and Ellie and that's a lot of Ls.

I do like Leila, this spelling, but it's a bit too soft imo. I like a name to have a bit more strength. Pretty but strong. Lydia with Lila as a nn would be better imo.
